Mice homozygous for mutation in the KIX domain of p300 showed multilineage defects during the hematopoiesis, such as B-cell deficiency, megakaryocytosis, and thrombocytosis, thus indicating that binding of p300 to c-Myb and CREB is required for hematopoiesis [39].
And these lead to thrombocytopenia and reactive megakaryocytosis [12].
